SUMMARY: Simply put, The Abundance Book defines God and God's manifestation within you (however you care to define these concepts) as the sole source of your prosperity. God is characterized as all-providing. (Note that this book can be used by agnostics and atheists as well as theists, in that the program can be modified to refer to God as the force of natural law, as the intelligent force in the universe, or in similar terms.)
While God must, of necessity, work through people and material events, you should not confuse these vehicles with God, the Source. Rather, you should allow God to work with you, inside you, and through you and others to bring you abundance and prosperity. The book, through a 40 day program, teaches you to incorporate these principles into your daily life.
WHAT HAPPENED TO ME WHEN I TRIED IT: I was laid off in the summer of 2002. I determined that I wanted to use a spiritual approach as well as conventional means to conduct my search for employment. I started the 40 day program on August 14, 2002. After the 40 days were up, I continued to read affirmations and excerpts from the book daily.
Initially, the program was difficult for me, for it caused me to realize that I had subconscious views that I was unworthy of receiving abundance, particularly in the form of money. I also had difficulty in believing the concept that I was a part of or a manifestation of God, and that God worked in me and through me. With time, these concepts became more and more comfortable.
The next thing that I noticed was a greater feeling of peace, security and calm acceptance of my circumstances. I continued to look hard for work, but became more comfortable with the belief that a job would come to me with time and that I would be taken care of by God until it did. This belief gave me a sense of comfort and ease during a very unsettled time, and allowed me to conduct my job search with more confidence and peace than I normally would have done.
This feeling of serenity also allowed me to use some of my savings to attend a conference related to my profession, to visit distant family, and to take a brief vacation. I also continued to make charitable contributions and made a financial gift to a friend in need during this period. These actions were very uncharacteristic for me, because I had been raised to worry about money, especially in lean times. Instead, this more liberal use of my savings left me feeling empowered. (Note, however, that I did not enter into any expenditures that would lead me into financial jeopardy. Confidence and peace should not mean foolhardiness.)
I completed the 40 day program in late September. Coincidentally or not (and I recognize that employers are more active in late September and October than they are in the summer) my resume began to get better response and I began to have more interviews-- a trend that continued through the autumn.
HAPPY ENDING: I accepted a job offer at 20% above the total amount of my previous salary AND bonus (and at an even higher percentage above my previous base salary). The salary is the highest that I have ever earned-- and this in a recession. In addition, I was told that I was selected for the position from a field of extremely well-qualified candidates and that the selection process was competitive.
I believe that The Abundance Book has helped me materially. More important, I KNOW it has enhanced my view of God and God's works, and made me into a happier,more spiritually evolved, more secure and more generous person. These last are treasures not easily gained. I am supremely grateful to The Abundance Book, to John Randolph Price and, most importantly, to God.
I hope that you buy The Abundance Book and follow its program. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain.
Well, like the old saying goes, one day I just got sick and tired of being sick and tired. For some reason or another, I started questioning my beliefs. How many of us actually do that? Most of us just accept these hand-me-down beliefs without question and not only do we accept them, but we embrace them, and we embody them. We "make" them real. We can even prove to others why they are so very real. but do we ever stop and wonder why these beliefs are valid and true? Do we ever stop and consider that there are those people who are among us now who belief differently than us and are consequently having different experiences than us because of their beliefs?
Jesus Christ said, "It is done unto you as you believe...." That's a very empowering statement. How many of us have ever really pondered its significance? It is done unto you, unto me, unto us as we believe and the bottom line for many of us is not so much that there is not enough good to go around as much as it is that we're not good enough.
Think about. we have religions that "bully" us into believing that we're sinners, that we're unworthy, rotten, undeserving; that a lot of us are going to spend the afterlife eternally burning and roasting because we used our "free will" to think differently. But God is a God of Infinite Love, people. We can't even comprehend the word 'Infinite' because it implies something that goes way beyond our ability to comprehend. God is Spirit and that Spirit is everywhere present and always available and It is the Source of all that is seen as well as all that is unseen.
This little book will "train" your mind to think differently about money, about wealth, about riches. There really is no shortage to our good because our good is always right where we are. We place ceilings, limits, and restrictions to our good, but to God, there is never a lack, never a shortage, never a depletion of all that is good and beautiful and of good report and our good will begin to "appear" the moment we start believing in it. Truth is, our good is always present, but our limited beliefs veil our eyes from seeing all the opportunities and all the possibilities that are before us in each and every moment of each and every day.
I read this book, read it again, and read it again. I figured that I spent most of my lifetime believing in limitation and lack, what was 120 days of my life thinking about abundance, wealth, and prosperity? While reading each affirmation I would imagine money coming to me in large amounts. I would imagine it coming from expected as well as unexpected channels.And guess what? Money started coming in! Every day I received a little more. One day I even set the intention of creating a $1,000 and by the end of the day I received $1400 and it is all because I transcended my old beliefs about money and came to the realization that God wants each one of us to be rich! That's a blasphemous statement to some of you I'm sure, but think about it. From one little apple seed comes a multitude of apples. In fact so many apples can come from just one tree that many just fall to the ground and rot. God is lavish abundance. There is no poverty in the Mind of God. Think of all the things you can do with a lot of money. Does being poor really help the poor? Look at Oprah. She is incredibly rich and she does incredible things with her money. When you are rich, you can afford to think of good things to do, when you're poor, you're worried about where your next meal is gonna come from. Trust me, I grew up with a single parent who scrambled to make ends meet. I love my dad...I love everything he's ever done for me...but I am not going to adopt his beliefs that there is never enough.
We are good enough, worthy enough, and deserving enough to be rich, to be wealthy, to be abundant. Start seeing yourself as prosperous...start identifying yourself with God's Glorious Good...imagine your wallet or your purse filled with crisp 100 dollar bills, imagine your checking and your savings account filled to overflowing. Believe! And as you believe so shall it be done unto you.
Do not listen to the naysayers. Do not listen to those people that say that poverty is good. God is rich and abundant and overflowing with good. I know that there is more than enough for EVERYONE to be rich, successful, happy, and fulfilled...
What are you willing to believe?
Peace and Blessings.
